Nurture Your Spirit
Facing mortality is a highly transformative experience.
As humans, we are complex creatures. As you may know or believe, your soul is something intangible. While we can’t hold it in a physical sense, it is what makes you yourself, your very essence. I am here to support you or your loved one to address common emotional and spiritual concerns at the end of life that may arise such as:
- Fear/anxiety of death
- Facing mortality while reckoning with spiritual concerns
- Understanding death and death pre-planning
- Wanting a safe presence without trying to “fix” anything
- Anticipatory Grief
Virtual Death Midwifery
Death Midwifery is a holistic way of tending to everything that death touches.
There is no one size fits all approach.
Support may look different depending on where you are on your journey.
It may look like exploring your own personal death awareness or death anxiety.
It may look like providing guidance, and support as you navigate a real death experience.
I am knowledgeable in areas of navigating the deathcare system, holistic alternatives to caring for dying individuals, and gently guiding caregivers to feel more confident and empowered as they face the unknowns.
In a world where healthcare systems are strained and people are left with more questions than answers, I hope to provide a calm, supportive energy in a time that is often scary, confusing and uncertain.

As your Companion in Grief, I will walk alongside you as you navigate the vast terrain of the mourner’s path. This path is one we all must walk at some point in our lives, however, it is my belief that it does not have to be walked alone.
Navigating grief is a skill and the only way out is through.
And this path is one that many people have not learned to develop a relationship with until faced with loss, as it is happening and unfolding in real time.
As your Grief Companion, I offer a different form of support than that of traditional Grief Counselors or Therapists. My philosophy of grief is not based in a pathological model (i.e mental health) but rather, that grief is a normal and natural human experience that must be witnessed and expressed.
It is my intention to support your personal grief journey through storytelling, somatic expression, ritual and meaning making.
